November 2013

The holidays are here -- it's the season to reflect on all the positives in our lives. It's also the time of the year to remember our Veterans and the service and sacrifices they have made for our nation. We are truly thankful to these brave men and women.

We wish all of our patients and their families a very Happy Thanksgiving and a Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating the festival of lights!

November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month!

According to the Epilepsy Foundation, 2.2 million Americans are diagnosed with epilepsy and the numbers in the elderly are climbing as baby boomers reach retirement age. Sadly, our returning veterans are also predicted to be at risk as studies show an increased chance of developing epilepsy following traumatic brain injury.

In one-third of patients, medication is not effective in controlling their seizures. Neurofeedback gives hope to these patients and those who do not wish to rely on prescription drugs to manage their symptoms. BrainCore neurofeedback trains the brain to de-emphasize brain-wave patterns that lead to seizures and emphasize those that make them less likely to occur. In fact, clinical trials have shown that is possible to eliminate seizures or reduce the amount of medication required to control them with neurofeedback training.

Falling Leaves Can Truly Be A Pain In the Neck

What a beautiful autumn we are having! The trees are all aglow with fiery reds, oranges and yellows. As much as we admire those blazing beauties, we all know they will be shedding their leaves any day, if they haven't already started. Love it or hate it, raking has to be done.

Avoid the typical upper or lower-back strain, neck strain and pain in the shoulders that are common during the season as you battle the falling leaves. Approach raking as if you would any athletic sport by stretching out, staying hydrated and using proper postural positioning.

For more detailed tips, check out the American Chiropractic Association's website.
